Only sixteen feathers needed

Post by JohnGoldsmith » Sat May 30, 2020 4:37 pm

Thanks to my pal D.H. Only need two eight tails for the basic set.
Need Rodent to get his best VAM friend a 14.12 and a 14.17.
All he has to do is sell his scrap WOW set and get melt money for it.

What I find most amazing about your remaining want list is... 14.19 isn't on it. :mrgreen:
When in doubt... don't.

The 14.19 so far is the highest price coin I ever paid for. A side note, it was the first 14.19 problem free coin in a PCGS holder.

My motto is I may not have the best, but I have the coin.

There are very, very few people who can say, "I have a problem-free one of those." Bravo.

I must say very tough to find a 14.19.
I picked a raw one in Omaha several years back, got it into net grade pcgs holder.
Told dealer it was rare vam, he said I don’t give a dam about vans.
Paid 26.00 for it.
Sold it and stepped up to au 58 pcgs off heritage auction several years back.
Not cheap.

I remember that coin Larry. It's a monster! And the radial die crack at the 2nd 8 is huge. I can't imagine they let the obverse die stay in service much longer after your coin was struck.
When in doubt... don't.

Then I recommend a 1901-P Shifted eagle and you'll be done, with only one coin!
